The Federal Government has been tasked to caution the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, who has declared the leadership of the organised labour wanted or face industrial action from the the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers NUPENG.

In the event that NUPENG proceeds on strike, it will cripple the supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country.

The National President of NUPENG, Williams Akporeha, said in a statement that it had received a report of a clandestine move of Governor El-Rufai to put the lives of the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, and other union leaders at risk.

Part of the statement reads, “NUPENG, therefore, warns that if any harm is inflicted on any of the members of the organised labour, the leadership of the union will not hesitate to call on all our members throughout the nation for a total shutdown of all our services in the upstream, mid-stream, downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.”
